"Snag It" is a celebration of Franz Jackson as well as a study in exuberance by trombonist Jim Beebe's Chicago Jazz. Jackson is the band featured artist and Beebe wanted to present all facets of the artistry. " I think everyone should understand that franz is the total jazz musician," Beebe says. "Beyond that, he is also a complete entertainer. So I wanted to showcase Franz the clarinetist and Franz the tenor and soprano saxophonist both as a soloist and an ensemble player. And of course ther's Franz the singer. The singing is very important."
